playing with my new toy...and just playing

I mentioned in my previous post that I got a new camera!  I have been so blessed to have wonderful photographer friends that, for the last - 8 months or so - have loaned me high tech cameras to practice on.  I only, within the last year or two, have fallen in love with photography.  And nice cameras are expensive.  I wanted to make sure this wasn't a phase I was going through before I committed to an expensive camera. 

It is clear now.  I LOVE photography.  So I went in...and with my mom and dad's a Nikon D3100.  And so far I love it!  There is so much for me to learn....but I am on my way.

What better way to practice than on other subjects?!  Rather than Layla who hates when I follow her around with the camera.  So, I got lucky when Richard had a friend come to town last weekend.  With his wife and four boys.  You read that right!  FOUR BOYS!  Whew....practice, indeed!

Oh!  Now that everyone is cheesin' at the camera...someone got into the spirit! 

{remember me?}

We decided to get the kids out and about on Sunday to enjoy the beautiful weather...and there was a carnival set up not too far we drop by for some fun! 

{I wanna adopt him...just sayin'!}

{I soooo wanted a funnel cake, but I avoided those 770 calorie killers...just sayin'!}

{Looks like Layla will be a future cheerleader...just sayin'!}

{Someone looks super excited....just sayin'!}

And you know the adults had to get their FREAK OUT on too.  A lil big time CRAY-ZAY ride!!!! 

{The beginning}

{The end...scared sh*tless...and completely quiet....just sayin'!}

{Layla thinking, "I think I'll skip that one..."}

And after a long, and fun, and gorgeous, and exhausting day.... was time to call it quits! 

{You can call us the Chuck Taylor Family...just sayin'!}

I love the color and composition in your photos. Love the new camera. I'm kind of jealous, in a friendly I'm-really-happy-for-you kind a way. Congrats and have a ball :)

Congrats! Looks like you guys had a blast. Since the Bambinos were born, I've been borrowing my dad's nikon and I love it. I just wish I were better at taking pictures and knew how to use all the settings (he lost the manual.)
